Post Hiroshige is my new body of work and continues my interest into Japanese Architecture and representation of space both within artwork and publication form.
The body work draws inspiration from Historic Japanese Ukiyo-Artist Hiroshige Utagawa. The interest lie in how Hiroshige broke away with traditional mathematical formulas of the time, in-return created a new way of seeing the natural and built landscape. The series was created to replicate this angle of representation, through using highly detailed Photographs of the Japanese modernist city Sapporo, the works represents the architecture landscape in a different manner, one that explores through a series of photographs the variety of Architectural nuances.
Color used within the publication, popup cards and Prints is the pigment data from Hiroshige Utagawa’s work “Kinryuzan Temple Akasaka, c 1830”. Provided by the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia
